FI and I have FINALLY agreed on an invitation for our wedding. But the more I look at it, the more I feel like it won’t look right with the traditional “couple is hosting” wording.
We are hosting, but it wouldn’t bother me if our parents’ naes are at the top. They have supported us a lot nonfinancially throughout the planning, and it wouldn’t bother me one bit if their names are at the top, especially if it makes it so that the invitation works and we can finally get them ordered. For the record, here is the invitation:
I am also concerned that FI’s first name (Let’s just use “Jason” as an example; close enough) will be too short to look right, but I feel like this is probably something they could fix for us.

@EffieTrinket: I don’t think it matters if you don’t care. But you could put something like “with joyous hearts and together with their families” at the top just to have something there instead of your parents names.
As for the name, Fiona is short in the example and looks fine. Is his name shorter than yours?

@MexiPino: No, but it’s the same length.
I am not sure whether the wording you suggested will work–if we do that, there will be no last names on the invitation. And since our return address stamp doesn’t have them either, I am not sure that would be ok. I know everyone will know who we are, but it seems odd to me to have no last names anywhere.

@EffieTrinket: Hmm… maybe “together with the Trinket and Smith families”?

How formal is your wedding?
